Xi's Five Musts & Light in Hamas's Tunnels
On 21 November an Emergency BRICS Summit was convened to discuss the Gaza Genocide that was reported here previously contained the entire text of Xi Jinping’s short address that went unparsed or highlighted. My friend Peter Watson, PeterAU1 as he’s known at MoA, asked if there was any strong language in Xi’s speech and if I knew where it could be read. I wasn’t certain about Xi’s rhetoric and had already republished it so finding it was no problem. So, here again are the two core paragraphs from his short address that deal specifically with Palestine:
The conflict in Gaza is raging on into its second month. China is gravely concerned that the conflict is causing enormous civilian casualties and a humanitarian disaster, and tends to expand and spill over. China believes that the following is urgent and imperative: First, the parties to the conflict must end hostilities and achieve a ceasefire immediately, stop all violence and attacks against civilians, release civilians held captive, and act to prevent loss of more lives and spare people from more miseries. Second, humanitarian corridors must be kept secure and unimpeded, and more humanitarian assistance should be provided to the population in Gaza. The collective punishment of people in Gaza in the form of forced transfer or water, electricity and fuel deprivation must stop. Third, the international community must act with practical measures to prevent the conflict from spilling over and endangering stability in the Middle East as a whole. China supports the resolution adopted at the emergency special session of the U.N. General Assembly on October 27. The U.N. Security Council under China's presidency has adopted Resolution 2712. All the parties must act to deliver on these resolutions through concrete measures on the ground.
The root cause of the Palestinian-Israeli situation is the fact that the right of the Palestinian people to statehood, their right to existence, and their right of return have long been ignored. I have emphasized on many occasions that the only viable way to break the cycle of Palestinian-Israeli conflict lies in the two-state solution, in the restoration of the legitimate national rights of Palestine, and in the establishment of an independent State of Palestine. There can be no sustainable peace and security in the Middle East without a just solution to the question of Palestine. China calls for early convening of an international peace conference that is more authoritative to build international consensus for peace and work toward an early solution to the question of Palestine that is comprehensive, just and sustainable.
I’ve bolded the five Musts and China’s Big Picture solution that complements Xi’s Global Security Initiative (I link to and discuss all Xi’s major Initiatives here.) Must is a very specific word that’s often compared with “have to.” Here’s one of several explanations about the key difference:
There is a big distinction in the meaning of must and have to. Must is used when referring to something that is mandatory, or required. Have to, on the other hand, implies that there is some sort of obligation involved.
“… something mandatory, or required.” Now with that in mind, reread Xi’s five musts. The bolded final two sentences are also musts despite the word’s absence. In diplomacy, must is a very hard word, which is usually followed by “or else”. Xi expressed the voice of the Global Majority. Imperialism is in hospice and the Global Majority want it do expire. A needed part of that death is resolving Palestine as Xi suggested, And that means the Zionist Project is now dead, but there’s still lots of work to do. Here’s a reply I made at MoA relative to the ineffectiveness of the Arab nations surrounding Palestine:

Effectively, every nation containing an Outlaw US Empire military base is a colony with its sovereignty restricted to some degree. We see the immediate effect that has on the Palestine situation as the Empire controlled the neighboring states that would be the enforcers of the various UN Mandates, so nothing happened and the Zionist Project was allowed to continue. In order for any peace/security pact to be made a reality between the Persian Gulf and other West Asian states, the occupying power must be evicted--Indivisible Security cannot have a bad actor within its midst for it to properly function. Yes, the Zionists pose a problem too, but what protects the Zionists? I see only one way to rapidly evict the occupying power, and that's for the local populace to get completely out-of-hand to the point where the local authorities join by doing nothing. There're two nations that will need to use their military to oust the Empire--Iraq and Syria. And eventually the Turks will also need to leave NATO and evict its troops.
The Zionist Zealots are fanatics who now lust after the completion of their Project. But Hamas is more fanatical about stopping the Zionists Project. IMO, Crooke's been trying to tell us that, but perhaps he wanted to see if Hamas could last 2 months and resist enough to force the Zionist ceasefire capitulation. It might be too early to say this, but IMO the Zionist Project is dead, in that the ultimate goal will not be attained--Complete elimination of the Palestinians from Gaza and West Bank. We shall see what happens as the month comes to a close. But within the Hamas tunnels there's light, and I'll wager morale is very high.
We shall soon see how far Xi’s musts get implemented. I’m rather certain that Xi made a few things very clear to Biden and his team while at APEC that will remain quiet until memoir are published. Putin proposed the same objectives as Xi but was lower key about them although he was quite blunt as to where the blame for it all lies—The Outlaw US Empire—and not for the first time either. Team Biden’s behavior clearly made them an accomplice to the Zionist’s Project, which became a global PR disaster as that effectively cratered all existing Establishment Narratives leaving the Emperor naked to the world. That global pressure on the Outlaw US Empire and the Zionists is higher than ever before—particularly compared to Ukraine’s conflict with Russia—shows the depth of the shift and movement into the RoW Bloc that wants peace and people centered development—the exact opposite of the Empire’s aim. The Empire may have bases over most of the world, but it’s being made to shrink into its own Bloc as it really has nothing to offer the world aside from professional sports and some amazing geography.
